A senior strategic hire in digital and new Head of Talent jobshare, bolstering the team in answer to growing demand during this ‘talent crunch’…

Talented People is thrilled to announce that YouTube Originals Production Executive Emily Taylor joins us as Talent Executive to lead the digital/online content staffing department of the company. Emily was Head of Production for digital at Jamie Oliver’s production company, before moving on to build an in-house digital production arm at Studio 71 and then her Production Executive role at YouTube. Emily will be matchmaking talent with clients’ roles in freelance and permanent positions from creatives to copywriters, producers to production managers.

Also, stepping up into a newly created Head of Talent role as a jobshare with Katie Bright is Manchester-based Naomi Callan, Series Editor turned Talent Manager with Talented People since 2021.

These two are an impressive pairing, and it feels bang on for us to be able to model the kinds of roles we champion ourselves with a senior jobshare. says Joint MD Rosie Turner. Katie and Naomi’s decades of experience in both staffing and programme-making means they can support the wider team as well as specialise in executive searches across development, editorial and post production.

You might have been speaking to some other new team members here at TP Towers too… Other recent hires include Talent Manager Tors Sorby, joining from her role identifying and nurturing under-represented talent at MAMA Youth Project, Jessica Endonyan, the RTS award-winning Producer of ‘David Harewood: Why is Covid Killing People of Colour’, and Nicki Reilly, Glasgow-based Talent Coordinator supporting with production management roles.

The Talent Managers at TP are as diverse as the candidates we place, -with two thirds of our team from an under-represented group.


The senior team are proud to have brought together a bunch of driven, creative people from all walks of life, with different personal circumstances and challenges. It’s no coincidence that we’ve all ended up in talent, in flexible working positions where people are the priority.
